Selecting the Right Transit

Your business is one of a kind, and deserves vehicles that are uniquely suited to your toughest tasks. That's why Ford offers both Transit and Transit Connect in multiple lengths, roof heights and engine choices, as well as an extensive list of upfit suppliers. Whatever you need, you'll find a solution here that perfectly fits your business.


Transit

Configure a Transit Cargo Van or Passenger Wagon with the combination of load floor length and height for the cargo volume/payload or passenger capacity you need. The Ford Transit is designed for capability and flexibility - and engineered to Built Ford Tough® standards for durability.

The Transit Van is designed to maximize cargo space for carrying large volumes and heavy payloads. The Transit Passenger Wagon, with seating from eight to 15, accommodates a broad range of personal and commercial applications. Whether you're an independent owner-operator or the manager of a corporate fleet, it's all about working productively while taking care of the bottom line.

The Transit offers a line of three powerful engines designed to meet the challenge of operating at high performance while helping keep costs as low as possible. First is the standard 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 with advanced twin independent variable cam timing. Then there's the available 3.5L EcoBoost® and the proven 3.2L I-5 Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel that combines power plus Built Ford Tough® durability and dependability.

Today, working productively isn't about working hard - your van is engineered to do that. For your part, it's about working smart, every hour of every day. That's why every measure of the Ford Transit work space is carefully designed to maximize efficiency and versatility, making your Transit the ideal tool for any job.

Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Connect is engineered to deliver the capability you need in a big way. Carry cargo with a payload rating up to 1,610 lbs. in the van. Or transport people in the passenger wagon that offers the most seating flexibility in its class - five, six or seven passengers.* Need to pull a trailer or rec vehicle? The maximum 2,000-lb. tow rating is unsurpassed, when properly equipped.** Beyond these impressive numbers, Transit Connect measures up very well with safety and available driver-assist technologies.

Its compact size and maneuverability make the Transit Connect Cargo Van ideal for working in tight spaces and congested areas. A wide variety of vocational upfits are available to match precisely the business you're in. And there's the Transit Passenger Wagon for commercial-use commuter applications. Whether you're an independent owner-operator or the manager of a corporate fleet, going with the Ford Transit Connect is all about working as productively as you can.

The Ford Transit Connect is engineered to stringent Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards - tested to 150,000 customer-equivalent miles - and Built Ford Tough® to meet your requirements for hard work and reliability, all day, every day. Whether your business is carrying cargo or transporting people, the Transit Connect is a vehicle you can depend on to get the job done.

Choosing the Transit Connect is a smart move from the get-go. Its compact dimensions, best-in-class maneuverability** and big capacities are perfect for the business plan that doesn't require the size and cost of a full-size cargo van or passenger wagon. Now factor in the intelligent options available like the latest SYNC® 3 connectivity system - and your decision to go with the Transit Connect becomes just that much smarter.

Companies with large fleets, known as Pool Companies, are authorized to order vehicles from an assembly plant and are able to stock commercial vehicles at their pool location until they are sold through a Ford dealership.

Some companies may be approved as a Ship-Through location, offering the ability to work directly with Ford dealerships to make desired modifications as part of the ordering process.

Modifications can only be made by a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM). A QVM is authorized by Ford to make structural modifications to the vehicles before delivery.
